In order to help you, we need you to be more specific about what's

* Why are you still using 3.1.8?

* What do you think is the "newest"?

* When you connect, how long do you stay connected?

* What is the exact error message you're seeing?

* What's in the errorLog after you lose your connection? (You can get
the contents of the errorLog from the Module Manager's Help menu.)

> Someone suggested port forwarding?

Port forwarding is irrelevant unless you're trying to set up a server.
